Hooters T-giving

Bostonians forced to eat at Hooters! The horror!

‘Thanksgiving nightmare’ story featured at Globe-owned site

Lemon Don -Bill-Cosby-CNN

Did CNNer make Rush Blush?

What happens when a newsworthy story is so cringeworthy, it must be avoided altogether? It might make Rush blush (incidently, we’re not sure if anyone has ever used those two words in a rhyme), a relatively rare occurrence for a man who has been around the block.

Santelli Rick 4

Santelli: ‘I feel like I’m in a cartoon here!’

Somehow, after all this time, Rick Santelli still has a home at CNBC. An iron-clad contract? Barnyard pics of NBC execs? We don’t know, but that doesn’t mean Santelli gets a whole lot of airtime despite his outsized public recognition. In any debate setting, he’s usually outnumbered five-to-one or more by Obama/Yellen suck-ups.

Cosby Bill 1969 album

Fox vs Fox fans over Cosby?

Does a 1969 comedy recording prove Bill Cosby’s a rapist?

That’s what a story picked up by Fox News seems to be suggesting, leading to criticism from from an atypical place: conservatives who are otherwise network fans.

Though the piece originated at Entertainment Tonight, Fox 411 picked it up in its entirety. The Washington Post has their own story, which points to New York’s Village Voice as making this “discovery”. That appears to be the origin of this dubious development. Read all »

Jerusalem synagogue attacks IBTimes

CNN’s latest flub: is it really an accident?

Cue James Earl Jones: this is DNN!

The Dummy News Network (after a nonstop series of recent flubs, do they still deserve to go by their real name?) is at it again, this time blatantly mischaracterizing the target of today’s sickening terror attack in Jerusalem.

We could’ve sworn it was a SYNAGOGUE that was attacked in cold blood, not a MOSQUE. We’re pretty sure there’s a difference, DNN! Read all »

Shadowy political figure 1

CNN exposé: no fair- Republicans used Twitter!

Eager to regain its credibility after years of wandering aimlessly, CNN is returning to hard-hitting (!) investigative pieces. Today’s top-of-homepage scoop? Damning revelations that Republicans and conservative groups used Twitter to share polling data. How dare they!

What’s next, a week-long series on Jaywalking in America: the National Scourge?

Even more sinister (and perhaps entertaining), these shadowy GOP figures communicated in SECRET CODE: Read all »

Taylor Dr Matt comet landing shirt

PC madness: comet landing vs ‘sexist’ shirt

What’s more important: landing a rocket on a comet or that one of the architects of this miracle wore a politically-incorrect shirt during a media conference?

The resulting firestorm over Dr Matt Taylor’s “kinky” shirt quickly began to overshadow the main event to the point where he felt compelled to give a tearful apology, once again before the press: Read all »

Melissa Francis: NBC censored me over O-care

Given the number of anchors and reporters who’ve departed CNBC since the creation of rival Fox Business Channel, we’ve long wondered when the beans would finally spill. What’s it like to work for a network directly in bed with the Obama Administration?

It’s why we’ve worked to bring attention to CNBC’s obsession with rosy economic happy-talk designed to make Obama look good, in the same way MSNBC is used to tout his political agenda.

It’s a point many conservatives have missed, wrongly assuming business news is unimportant. Read all »

CNN - you might hear the national anthem

CNN suggests National Anthem is offensive

In 2012, our previous site sparked a national firestorm when we caught former CNN host Bill Press denouncing the National Anthem. The resulting flap was featured on major news networks and had the unfortunate side effect of bringing the liberal talk host an undeserved wave of publicity. But that’s the price of calling attention to anti-American sentiment.

Now, it’s CNN itself under fire for showing a bizarre warning label before airing a portion of the Star-Spangled Banner. Did they think viewers would be offended? Or is it known to cause seizures?

When pushed by The Daily Caller, the conservative website that broke the story, the network blamed it on a producer’s error.

Whether that is to be believed depends on the status of the cable news channel’s credibility. Hint: it’s not particularly high these days! Read all »

CNBC: where the bulls are ANGRY!

Like many others who follow stocks, we’ve long wondered why CNBC is so relentlessly bullish, to the point of angrily shouting down the few market bears who can manage to get a moment or two of airtime.

Aren’t shares supposed to endlessly spike higher for no reason at all? How dare anyone question that?

You’ll seldom hear the MANY uber-bulls that fill the NBC business channel’s programming schedule being held accountable for their rotten predictions. When markets suddenly go south, as they did in early October, the on-air atmosphere quickly turns glum. Read all »

Ernst Joni 1

Chris Matthews smears ‘castrator’ Joni Ernst

Is Joni Ernst ready for the left’s Smear Machine?

Our “progressive” media friends think they’ve found the next Sarah Palin and are devoting firepower accordingly, doing whatever they can to block the senator-elect’s political rise. The Iowa Republican stunned Beltway insiders after pulling off an upset victory on election night, leaving Democrats wondering why they’d underestimated her abilities (often a path to political success- don’t let them see you coming!).

Schultz Ed - Glenn Beck rant Nov 14

Sick or disabled? The smear machine doesn’t care

In a wheelchair? Seriously ill? The “progressive” smear machine has a red target painted on your chest!

In the past, political attacks certainly may have been gutter-level, but stopped short of personal smears against the sick and disabled. But in 2014, we’ve seen even that once-sacred boundary fade away, with depressing results.

In Texas, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis aired a now-infamous ad last month that seemed to attack Republican Governor-elect Greg Abbott over his disability. Abbott, who has been paralyzed and in a wheelchair since an accident many years ago, found his support base rallying behind him after the slimy ad aired, while Davis sunk further in the polls.

Midterm Mayhem

Parody clip rips MSNBC to shreds

After this month’s election bloodbath, does MSNBC have any viable future as a cable news network? A scathing new parody clip puts the matter to rest: it is toast.

You might expect this attack on NBC’s far-left news channel to come from the right, but it’s actually from “Midterm Mayhem“, featured on the Fusion channel. The latter is a joint venture of ABC and Univision, the Spanish-language network. Read all »
